COVID-19 and Your Family

images

Back in mid-March when the various lock downs began, I commented to one of our home schooling families in our church, "We are all home schoolers now!" When I said it, I confess it gave me some degree of glee. After all, I have for years strongly advocated for home education as the most biblically faithful and ideal model for families, with Christian private education and ...

COVID-19 and Governor Cuomo

Screen-Shot-2020-04-15-at-6.04.50-PM

COVID-19 has done some serious damage to New York City. And it has done some serious damage in many other states and cities across the nation and world. Whatever our politics or religious beliefs, or lack thereof, we must all at least be willing to admit a sense of sadness at tens of thousands of deaths (unless you are pro-abortion, which would be the height of hypocrisy, ...

COVID, the Constitution, and the Church

h-shaw-UhOIDLhhIcI-unsplash

Like millions around this nation and globe, I have watched a virus reign terror down upon us. Or, is it our governments and medical professionals reigning terror down upon us? Or is it both? I am not a doctor or medical professional. I have no idea how best to battle a pandemic, at least not from a medical perspective. But I also have read enough to know that doctors arou...

COVID-19 and the "Cool Church"

​And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others (Matt 6:5). What I am about to say is not intended as a judgment upon any decisions being made by faithful pastors all around this nation. And I certainly have no reason to impugn motives. I have very c...

RBG Logic Applied to Abortion

abortion

The Supreme Court is hearing a pivotal case to determine whether to uphold Louisiana's law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. This is, of course, a reasonable safeguard to both the health of the mother, as well as the health of the baby if born alive (and yes we are now learning that happens more often then we might imagine). But ...

A Proper Burial

life

Let me tell you where Mayor Pete Buttigieg is not today. He is not at the burial ceremony for 2,411 aborted babies. That ceremony is being held in his city, South Bend, IN. But I feel sure he's not planning to attend. His radical pro-choice agenda simply could not stand up to the actual reality of tiny babies with faces, arms, fingers, ears, toes, brains, legs, hearts. Ma...

Reflect and Refocus

DSC_001.JPEG-1

Well, I slept through yet another New Year. Hit the sack about 11 p.m. TV off. Spent the last hours of 2019 reading the last few chapters of Revelation with my family. Answered questions as best I could regarding all the wild symbolism of that Blessed Book of the Bible. Reminded ourselves of the main thing - Jesus wins! He reigns forever and ever and those who have been s...

The Christian Chicken is . . . Chicken?

Screen-Shot-2019-12-04-at-9.30.16-PM

By now the dust is somewhat settling on Chick-Fil-A's decision to stop donating to the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. This was, apparently, due to certain corporate leaders' desire to pander more to the PC demographic regarding so-called Gay Marriage. This is no longer Truett Cathy's Chick-Fil-A. But I assure every Christian in America, this "dust" s...

Pastor Appreciation Month is Not Working!

Screen-Shot-2019-10-12-at-8.53.09-AM

Yes, it feels really weird to be writing this blog post. After all, I am a pastor. But I am convinced this post, and others like it, are critically important for churches today. Rather than try and say all I want to say, I think I will simply let well-known pastor, Thabiti Anyabwile, say it for me (DON'T MAKE YOUR PASTOR A STATISTIC). And my conclusion is that for all t...
